I’m blogging from my new upgraded chair… The new Ultimate Game Chair’s MotoGP 08 Reactor Chair ! If you’ve never sat in one before, you’re missing out on an experience. Unlike other chairs, this one has not only top of the line sound, but supports a load of other features. My favorite is the rumble. The whole chair vibrates just like your controller would. In MotoGP 08, this takes the game to a whole new level. 

Once you’re playing, you can turn the sound ear splittingly loud, but only you can hear it. It’s really convenient for those of you who have roomates or spouses who are constantly nagging you to turn it down.

You can get the whole press release, promo pricing, etc below.
